Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionThe rose - the woman - the legend! Julia Child™ Rose (Rosa sp.) is exceptional for so many reasons, not the least of which is that Julia herself selected this exact rose to bear her name. It also happens to be stunningly beautiful, covered in flowers of a gorgeous yellow-orange that some would say resembles fresh egg yolks; others might say butter. Flowers give off a lovely, sweet, anise scent and continue to appear all summer without any trimming or deadheading. It exhibits excellent disease resistance as well. This hybrid tea-type rose is simply the perfect gift for gardeners who love to cook (and eat!) or to add to your own herb or vegetable garden in honor of this truly iconic personality.DetailsBotanical name: Rosa 'WEKvossutuno' Patent #: USPP 18,473 Common name: Rose, Landscape rose, Shrub rose Zone: 4 - 8 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 2-3' tall x 2-3' wide Flower color: Yellow Foliage color: Green Bloom time: Summer - fall Features: Low flammability, heat tolerant, fragrant, cold tolerant Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, cottage gardening, foundation planting, hedge, massing, ornamental, specimen How To GrowSoil: Roses thrive in rich, well-drained soil. While they're not picky about pH, neutral to slightly acidic conditions are best. Once they are established, most roses can tolerate some dryness; however, flowering will decrease or even stop if they become stressed. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun). This encourages the best flower production while also aiding in disease resistance. Water: For best results, roses should get about an inch of water each week, through rainfall or irrigation. This can be difficult to gauge, but if you avoid keeping plants too wet or too dry, they'll be fine. When watering roses, whether by hand or with an irrigation system, avoid wetting the foliage, which encourages leaf spot diseases and powdery mildew. Spacing: 3-5 feet, minimum Fertilizing: Roses benefit from high levels of nutrients, increasing flowering as a result. We recommend a granular rose fertilizer applied in early spring, just as the ground begins to thaw. If you wish, you can make additional applications in late spring and early summer, but do not fertilize after mid/late July. Winterizing: In both warm and cold climates, a 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended year-round, especially in winter. In cold climates, wait until spring to prune; warmer areas may prune in autumn if desired. Maintenance & pruning: We do recommend yearly pruning of roses, as this encourages thick, vigorous growth and the best flower coverage. Aim to cut back to just above a large, vigorous bud. The bigger the bud you cut back to, the thicker and more vigorous the growth will be. Remove any spindly stems entirely. If roses show signs of leaf spot, remove affected portions. Most roses we offer do not require deadheading, but you may do so if you wish.

Plants arrived small, they looked healthy. First time buying plants from your site. It would be nice to have unpacking instructions on box. I have blooms already! A beautiful yellow color. Petals are perfect shaped.
My plant is thriving very well even in the 90 degree heat. And I just noticed that it already has a bud and can’t wait to see the bloom.
Ordering easy, well packed and good root and plant development. Thanks!
I ordered to Julia Child‘s rosebushes. Unfortunately, UPS took nearly a week to deliver them and they were in pretty bad shape when I receive them both of them were planted in our yard in a partly sunny area. One of them is absolutely gorgeous. I have never seen such a beautiful yellow rose. The other one unfortunately did not make it, but within 24 hours Great gardens was kind enough to refund my money as promised. I would buy from them again. Thank you for your wonderful customer service.
Beautiful and thriving
I bought this rose a couple of weeks ago and it has already bloomed and is growing bigger every day. The roses are beautiful.
